Relief Printmaking includes linoleum cut, wood cut, collagraph, and wood engraving.

Traditional relief printing techniques are used to produce small editions of black and white and color prints.

Intaglio printmaking includes engraving, etching, dry point, aquatint, hard ground, soft ground, and monotype. These all fall into the intaglio category because the image is produced from below the surface.

"I've bonded with faculty, classmates, and art unique to this environment. Here I grew to be knowledgeable, sensible, flexible, deliberate, introspective, and ultimately an artist I never thought I would be. I treasure my experiences; they will always be part of me and my art."
